After being asked several times about how to use Houdini Opening Book without owning the Aquarium package, we feel the need to answer this question specifically. We have developed Aquarium Book Adapter, a software package allowing you to use Aquarium books in other interfaces.

Follow this link to download Aquarium Book Adapter:
http://www.chessok.com/download/Aquarium/books/AquariumBookAdapterSetup.exe

To learn more about the Adapter, follow this link:
http://www.chessok.com/books/BAdapter.html

Although the latest Aquarium update (build 490) also installs Aquarium Book Adapter, you can only use it when Aquarium is not running. If you want to use them simultaneously, install a separate copy of the Adapter.

To use it, follow the steps below:
1) Run AquariumBookAdapterSetup.exe. Select the installation folder AquariumBookAdapter.exe and ABAGUI.exe will be installed to. Other essential files will also be copied to the DATA subfolder.
2) Run ABAGUI.EXE to configure the Adapter. See http://www.chessok.com/books/BAdapter.html for details.
3) Run Fritz or other GUI and add AquariumBookAdapter.exe as a new engine.
4) When installing the Opening Book, you will be asked to specify the Aquarium installation folder. Currently, the Book Adapter’s main purpose is to make Houdini Opening Book compatible with other interfaces. So select the directory you installed Aquarium Book Adapter to as the Aquarium installation folder. Add d2m tree (d2m.hsh and d2m.elm files) to the ATrees\Satistics folder and cap tree (cap.hsh, cap.elm) to the ATrees folder, rewriting the existing ones (after installing the Book Adapter they contain only demo trees).

The system is now ready for work.

If you have Aquarium with Houdini Opening Book on your computer, you may want to install a separate copy of the opening book to run it in different interfaces simultaneously. Using one copy of the book by different programs at a time can cause unpredictable errors.

Thanks, I have a doubt.

what is the difference, and because the values ​​are different?
note.

Aquarium Book Adapter Houdin10 Aquarium Book Adapter Houdin12

when I use the platform it uses 54.972k aquarium houdini
and when I use the platform it uses rybka4 546.100k of memory.

on the platform of the value rybka4 ta much larger than the houdiniaquarium, this means that the engine is using the best platformrybka4?

and I realized also that within the platform so houdini aquarium so he is constantly analyzing the movement of the engine when it comes my turn to move him to analyze.

I tested the two engines on one platform and one in the aquarium houdini rybka4 rybka4 platform and won!

How do I setup for the aquarium houdini stay strong?

Aquarium Book Adapter

(New Version + New Options) 08-Nov-2011

http://www.chessok.com/download/Aquarium/books/AquariumBookAdapterSetup.exe

Aquarium Book Adapter Adapte10

This program can be used to 2 main things:

1. Able to use Aquarium book format in Fritz GUI.
2. Able to use ctg book in winboard without Fritz GUI.

For both you need to edit a file that comes with it called: tree_configurations.xml located in (AquariumBookAdapter folder >>> Data folder). I have edited mine and as you can see I set ABA to use victorius.ctg book.

PS Load AquariumBookAdapter.exe in Fritz or Winboard as an engine.

No german language fionbo in the forum!

Your question 1 - what engines you tried with adapter? Remember to put Depth 100 in ABA
Your question 2 - you cant see the moves
Your question 3 - Houdini opening book no good at all, better use those great public books that win Testo tourneys.

Do I need to be copied and pasted the engine Houdini 2.0b Aqvarium file adapter? So that after instalira.Ja somehow got installed Hoduini2.0bABA engine. I put it to test pm blitz game .... 1 min to play with the engine without the book and the result is personal, 50-50%. How do I know that the book was included? Does not say Houdini book! The engine is running slower than aquarium adapter. Is this normal or am I installed something wrong?

descriptionAquarium Book Adapter EmptyRe: Aquarium Book Adapter

The best way to be sure you are using the book you want is you have in your computer Aquarium GUI program and load the book in this GUI. Then extract tree_configurations.xml file in this Aquarium GUI to Adapter folder.

Example: Load a book in Deep Rybka 3 Aquarium GUI then go to folder...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Deep Rybka 3 Aquarium\Config

And right click in the file tree_configurations.xml and choose "copy"

Now go to folder...

C:\AquariumBookAdapter\Data\Config

Right click, choose "paste"

Then click "Yes" to exchange files.

I do not know whether it makes sense ... This book will be out for a week ... Maybe it already is now. if I install. Viktorius it wins!

It would be good to make a test without a book Houdini Houdini otaranja-opening book with the adapter! Or something I did not install properly or adapter engine slows down a lot in the tournament.

This book will be past soon, maybe it is already! razz

PS A way to make the adapter installation with engine + ctg book or Houdini book easier is to have already in your computer Deep Rybka 3 Aquarium GUI.

STEP 1: Load a ctg book or Houdini book in the GUI

Aquarium Book Adapter Guii10

STEP 2: After loading the book close program. Then copy and paste the file tree_configurations.xml to Config folder in adapter

Aquarium Book Adapter 1a10

STEP 3: Now configure ABAGui to use engine and ctg book you want or Houdini book

Aquarium Book Adapter Aba10

Can it be done for Hoduini2.0Pro? Or just for Houdini2.0bPro? Can it be made ​​in FritzuGUI tournament engine (H2.0Pro-H2.0bPro) with the Houdini book? Or knjihu during the tournament may use only one engine? What happens in a Fritz GUI optimization (optimization of the book when making the opening tournament)? thank you

descriptionAquarium Book Adapter EmptyRe: Aquarium Book Adapter

You can use any Houdini version or Rybka. And for tournament you cant optimize book if you use Adapter, only thing you can do something is that Depth 100.

Hi guys!

I am here to warn you about the new adapter version. This version stops many times, has many bugs and makes our computer open many engines. Use the only stable and better version 2.5, you can find here:
